Jennifer Aniston threw a Christmas tree trimming party this past Saturday, December 14, and a very special guest attended: her ex-husband, Brad Pitt.
Now, before you jump to conclusions, it’s important to know a few things. 1) Pitt was just one of many A-listers who attended Aniston’s annual bash. Other celebs who went include Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, and Jimmy Kimmel, according to People magazine. And 2) Aniston and Pitt have maintained a “friendly” relationship for a while now. Need we remind you that he attended her 50th birthday party back in February 2019?
“They have been in touch a few times since her birthday and are keeping it friendly,” a source tells People. Earlier they added, “The annual tree trimming party is always Jen’s favorite to host. She loves Christmas. As usual, a large group of friends attended.”
So, no, this doesn’t mean Aniston and Pitt are getting back together. Their relationship ended over a decade ago, after all. They’ve moved on and clearly have a very nice rapport with one another.
On Pitt going to Aniston’s birthday party in February, an insider told People, “He would not have been asked to come if that weren’t the case. It was a big night for Jen. The important people in her life gathered to celebrate with her. Brad fits into that group, and it was natural that he would want to come.” What the two of them have, per this source, is a “very civil relationship.”
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were married between 2000 and 2005. Shortly after their split, Pitt got together with Angelina Jolie, and a fictional, tabloid-fueled love triangle formed between the three of them. When Pitt and Jolie split in 2016, all eyes, unsurprisingly, were on Aniston. But it’s time this narrative that she’s still pining over Pitt end. She has more important things going on in her life. And so do we.
